The museum is small and has excellent permanent and temporary displays. I normally do not find Egyptian displays hold my interest. I spent about an hour and will go back. It is so well done. The African gallery is also very interesting and well done. There was a temporary photography exhibit on the first floor that was hot and cold... More

Although the museum is small and fairly compact, the displays are excellent. There are 3 major exhibit areas on two floors--Global Africa, Ancient Egypt, and the Eleanor Norcross exhibit. The quilts, pictures and the photography shown in the galleries are second to none. Further, if you're a AAA member, you pay for one admission and get one free. There is... More

Okay, let's be real. This is not worth a long drive but if you happen to be nearby you should definitely pop in. Loved the Eleanor Norcross exhibit, the quilts, and the African exhibit. Fitchburg looks what you would imagine a town devastated by the 2008 recession - and it hasn't recovered. Since I've never been there before, I don't... More

This museum does a wonderful display of arrangements. In addition they exhibit quilts with floral themes. They also sell plants during the Art in Bloom exhibit. It is very welcoming museum with...

Definitely come.check out this venture. The entrance is so cool and it has so many rooms! You go inside and it looks small but then as you walk it just keep a going! The exhibits are nice! Make sure you have at least an hour as you'll wanna walk through the whole place!

We went there on a "free Friday,' something that 70 attractions throughout MA are doing to increase accessibility and raise awareness of their existence. When it comes to the Fitchburg Art Museum, I am now officially aware! Comprised of at least two buildings (there may have been more...all that we saw was via a single entrance. We did go over...
